Last year I reviewed in the proceedings of this Society the
synonomy of the genus Bythinella as far as it is represented
by the small freshwater shells of our streams. Since then I
have had my attention drawn by Prof. Tate to a species
described by Messrs. Quoy and Gaimard, which from the
figures and diagnosis I make no doubt belong to the genus,
and probably a subsequently described species; have also had
an opportunity of seeing Mr. J. Brazier's type specimens of
his Amnicola petterdiana, in which I can see no differences to
distinguish it from the shell already described. I was not
able to examine this type specimen before, as Mr. Brazier had
left Sydney, and his collection was packed away. In consequence
of this I was obliged to omit any reference to the
species in my last paper.
